LEGO Robotics Engineering: Figure 8 Challenge

Students in Mr. Zdrojewski's Info/Communication Technology course at Amherst Middle School have completed their next challenge in our Robotics Engineering unit.  The "Figure 8 Challenge" combines skills learned from past events such as the Square Around Chair challenge and our Linear Distances challenge.

See recent highlights in the video below I made with Videolicious, my favorite iOS app for rapid video production on an iPhone or iPad:

Our next challenge is the "Floor Maze" event, which involves a combination of calculating linear distances, angles, and using the Pythagorean theorem to discover how long their robots must travel in our maze.
